SRK's secret passion
He would have been a teacher, if not into acting
He is the reigning Badshah of Bollywood, so it is difficult to imagine Shahrukh Khan as being anything other than the superstar that he is.
Therefore, his revelation that he would have become a teacher if he had not gone into acting comes as a surprise. SRK, who is all set to host Kya Aap Panchvi Pass Ho?, a kid's quiz show on TV, has admitted that teaching has always been a secret passion with him.
The show allows him to fulfil his childhood dream, he says. It will see him more as a moderator than a teacher on air. But then, this is the closest he can get to play a mentor to kids, at least for now.
SRK admits that school for him was fun. Though he was studious, he played pranks as well. He recalls forcing his teachers to dance with him and also remembers blowing up something in the chemistry lab once. The actor still retains his sense of mischief and the kid in him surfaces when the he is in his favourite role -- that of doting father to Aryan and Suhana.
He believes that children need their parents to be both responsible as well as friends, someone who they can trust and have fun with. And it is this self-belief that he has garnered as a father that has given him the confidence to face kids on the show as well. Armed with this experience, the actor is ready for the barrage of 'childish' questions. But he feels that no question that a kid asks is childish or stupid.
He assures you from experience that there is many a time when a child will ask you a question and you will not be able to answer, even though the answer is on the tip of your tongue.
